Parent To Child About Sex
While this films producers should be applauded for their sensible approach in teaching parents how to talk to kids about sex, the awkward reading of cue cards and embarrassing situations will produce nervous giggles among even the most jaded audiences. This film was produced by some of the pioneers of sex education whose ideas are still being challenged by school boards today.

If you can't talk to your kid about sex ( and they are 43) this movie might help.. Maybe how dated it is will help... If not google skerrit boys guide to daggering for a more 2013 approach to sex ed.
Subject: What A Classic Film
The most important point made here is that the parent needs to be cool calm and collected right from the beginning about answering questions about babies, where they come from, how they get out. Why? Because for ever after that kid will consider you willing to offer the further info they will want, and not have to go elsewhere for that info. And for heavens sakes, act like genitals are basically a toe you just generally you keep coverd up - otherwise its yours to do with as you please. And this film conveys that message marvelously! These two guys were nationally recognized experts in this area. How they speak in this film is exactly the way they were on clinical rounds. I remember that very well.
I was impressed by this film when I saw it in medical school and 35 years later I still find it impressive. Unquestionably the best film regarding approaching sex ed for parents that was ever made. There is nothing radical or religious or ..anything..except rational, in dealing with this issue.
Gets the highest rating of any film I've seen on this site.
Subject: Hmm, I hadn't thought of that.
All in all not bad really. Dated? Sure, but fundamentally true and quite well done.
Subject: Pretty Impressive for it's time
My only quibble is the way they associate male masturbation with nocturnal emissions; still alluding to the 'letting off steam' fallacy. In addition, we're given no alternative strategy to deal with toddlers playing with themselves. Agreed it's a natural activity, however society does frown upon it in public. So how do we convey that message?
Subject: Vic Video is half-right.
It's a great video.
Subject: Reviewers of film here are disturbed
Subject: Dry and dated
Subject: Mmm pickles
Subject: too long
All of the men figures are creepy and are probably in jail. And the old woman at the end is enough to scare the shit out of anyone from ever having sex!
Includes hot gay locker room scene.
LESSON: Watch more porn instead of asking 80 year old ladies how often you should whack it.
